in the stock and missteps like google maps, should cook start asking is what would steve jobs have done? max wolf of green crest capital says tim cook could help himself by channelling more jobs. nicolas carlson makes the cay that in some ways tim cook is even better than steve jobs. i think we have a disagreement going here. max, you first. why can't we just allow apple to change and become tim cook's company? >> i think it has become tim's. that transition occurred prior to the passing away of steve jobs. i think it's healthy. i think he should stand on the shoulders. everybody in the tech world has something to learn from jobs. i think standing on the shoulders of steve jobs is great idea. i think wearing a dead man's pants to work is creepy and a terrible idea. he has to be different. he can't try to clone apple. after all, what makes apple different from all the people who want to be apple is it does its own thing. mr. cook has to follow in that great tradition. >> mnicolas, how does he do tha? what kind of business experience does tim cook bring that perhaps steve jobs didn't? >> first
there and broadening the face of offerin offerings? >> i think one thing you're seeing a competition with google and need to start hiring talent to keep up with google's innovation with cloud services, not necessarily in the hardware space. no one makes better hardware than apple. they don't need that engineering, they need software engineering to keep up with google to make cloud searching work. >> apple is going to spend 100 million dollars bringing some mac production to the united states. they're going to build these things in america and they've not done that before. what do you make of it. >> they haven't done it in 20 years and i know apple has been wanting to do this. it's been a thorn in the side of apple. stuart: it's for political reasons? >> it's for political reasons, sure, and the thorn in the side is tim cook to deal with worker conditions. >> no, no, no. >> sure. >> you can't tell me, the chief executive says i'm tired of getting on that plane and going to china. >> and i don't know that he cares about getting on the plane. he's tired of the negative pr. >> right. >> and now to t

disrupted by new players like square and paypal and google. the stock has been hit, but our fund manager we talked to think it's been unfairly hit. any time an industry is being disrupted, that's a good opportunity. >> u.s. bancorp? >> this is an old fashioned bank. focuses on deposits and loans and wealth management. none of the other stuff that can get you into trouble. this is one our clients really liked. >> this year dividend plays have been huge. everyone is looking for income. they look to these companies that have a good yield. the two that came through here were ford and, as it happens, our majority owner comcast. >> yes. so ford, you know, the auto recovery story is pretty significant. it's still happening. cars on the road are older. the replacement rate is going to go up. with ford, it has a rock-solid balance sheet. its dividend yield, we think, could go up. comcast is interesting. not because it's the boss' of "closing bell," it has a new revenue stream in nbc universal, which is up 32% in the third quarter because of the olympics and the election. you know, on the other side,
be the number one toy? >> there is certainly a chance of that and i think google and amazon they will capture the more price sensitive customer. i think important thing to consider in smartphones and tablets apple doesn't need 100% of the market. if you think about the smartphone business in total over the next few years, most of the growth will come from emerging markets. it will be lower priced hand-sets and probably android. as long as apple maintains premium share of smartphone market say at high-end we think they will be fine. david: bring an, bring it to where we started and tax issue and how much that apt affects the trade now. the people locking in profits now and are selling will they buy back in at the lower rate after the first of the year? >> i certainly think that is the case. it is certainly possible if they have a good quarter in the beginning of january. so i think that could be a catalyst to get investors to pile back in. david: let me press you, brian before you go, what do you think the price will be when that happens, when it gets back to the new normal? what will it be in
to pandora. >> everybody looks to this question. there is apple. there is facebook. there is google. >> uh-huh. >> and there is one more. and there's this competition. is that where the game is in the digital revolution? what happens between those four companies? >> well, i definitely think those four companies are sort of very much affecting the whole sort of digital landscape, but there's a lot of other companies out there that are making meaningful impacts. you guys had mark pink its its yesterday. >> you watched. >> yes, i watched. for gaming, we're for music, and netflix for video. many other companies are doing many things as well. >> you saw the gangnam-style guy, getting reportedly $8 million from youtube, and the itunes it down load. what does that say about the future, do you think, of the music industry? they can get $8 million from youtube? >> i think it's great, because all of these sources of revenue just means we're going to get the music industry back to growth again. >> daniel, thank you so much. >> thank you. >> you can visit cbs "this morning."com to subscribe to our spo

. microsoft, 87% of its cash. cisco. oracle at 80%. apple at 68%. google at 64%. that's important to note. the reason why these companies have so much cash overseas is that they've been global growth stories. when microsoft sells product overseas the proceeds go into accounts over there. don't come to the u.s. unless microsoft needs to buy something here. you can see it plays out in a company like apple, too, where international launches and international retail expansion have become far more important than the u.s. where growth is concerned. just five years ago apple had 58% of its cash in the u.s. this is actually a big issue for a company like cisco where john chambers has been very straightforward about saying if the federal government lets us repay treeuate this cash, bring it to the u.s. without a big penalty, we'll use it to hire and grow in this country. if not we'll hire less and, by the way, keep making bigger overseas acquisitions, too. all of this gets a bit dicier when you consider a lot of u.s. companies have gotten pretty good at avoiding tax on international sales by using

suggesting the iphone iphone is giving up to google's headlines. apple accounts for the entirely of the mass dnasdaq's fall of 1. apple is enjoying its best day since early last week. didn't close on its highs but equities up 8% points or so. futures back in positive territory, up 15 and down and up five or so. everybody's watching what's going on in d.c. overnight in asia it was mixed but not big moves sni where, japan had a good day and in europe we have green roar rows yesterday morning which pour tended good things for us here, germany doing the best. >> as expect the bank of england and european central banks left their ratings unchanged. mario draghi will hold his post meeting news conference. steve liesman has more exclusive raults from our all-america economic survey. >> what do people think about the fiscal cliff. consumer confidence has remind high. business confidence is down so the first thing we want to know, that's not the right chart, we want to do on whether or not people heard about the fiscal cliff. have you heard of it? comparing it to some of the other times people asked
a report out they are losing share to google's android. there is also concern about capital gains taxes. apple has been such a great performer over the last couple years that if you believe capital gains taxes are going to go up this has been a big winner for you. that's selling now could save you a ton of money versus selling next year. it's kind of a couple different head winds but i love the story. i think it will be a small portion of mac manufacturing but, still, having any manufacturing coming back to the united states especially high tech manufacturing from a leading company like apple, i think sends a very, very strong and good message. >> brian, harold ford. good morning. >> good morning. >> the questions around apple and whether the competition from, you mentioned android, but what microsoft is doing and obviously other companies, how does that affect the stock price going forward? andy surfs on saying it is a good price for the stock. how do you think the market is interpreting this? >> two things, harold. they're good questions. number one, on the tax issue if we can get som
